Back to Getsemani for a day tour of the street art.
Visited the biggest Spanish Forte in South America and listened to the incredible story.
Sun set.......... Cafe del Mar.....where else.
Spend the morning in a tour bus to Cartagena. Its is immediately obvious why this is the jewel of Colombia.
Small, interspersed streets with quaint shops and lots of tourists.
For sunset we had to experience the sunset at Cafe del Mar.
The sax player was an absolute star.
Then a late night in Getsemani. Beautiful streets filled with street art.Read more
The last day of hiking was a slog. 17km downhill but the previous nights rain turned all the roads into a mud wrestling championship.
Saw our last Wiwa hosts on the road and Sue was ecstatic to be done....... and then immediately crashed and burned 🤣🤣
A long, long day. Started the morning with the 5km ascend to Ciudad Perdida by crossing the river and climing the 1200 steps.
The city is huge. +- 2000 terraces of which 100 are cleared.
The inhabitants buried they dead under the huts with their posessions hence the army presence to try and preserve the artefacts.
5km back to the hammocks, got our main gear and hiked the the 8km back to Camp WiwaRead more
Easy morning walk but the camp is a challenge. At least it has a great water hole with a 5m jump.
Loved the photo of the little girl. What is she thinking about ...... the fence is a physical but also a mental barrier between our worlds
Also met up with soldiers protecting the tourists
